No Unlimited data?
I was just wondering if the no unlimited data is stopping anyone else from getting the new Iphone4? It is for me I'm with Verizon and use about 3 gbs. I have netflix so I would use that app. I also use slacker radio when I drive to work an hour commute. I am also holding out to see if Verizon get Iphone by next year. Which has been rumors for how many years? Just wondering how much data people here use and what apps you use?

No. If you are on the road a lot, chances are you are near a wi-fi hotspot and can just use that. Matter of fact if your in a location that you know has wifi, why not just use the that? Save your data for when you need it.
Example. almost all Mcdonalds locations have free wifi. Same with most Starbucks, gas stations. Even local parks and some cites. If your in a location with free wifi, just use it!
ATT removed the unlimited because of the data hogs and that bogged up the network.

Ironically, I never went over 2GB until they dropped the unlimited plan. Thankfully I was grandfathered in. Most of it is streaming audio I can't get over the air in a cleanroom.
Also, slacker is a perfectly acceptable choice to use while driving. Radio stinks and slacker rocks. Don't listen to the other guy.

When i dont use tethering im always easily under 1GB/month...when tethering though, without trying i can use 2GB, i usually float between 3 and 4GB/month.
Then listen to the normal radio like everyone else."Speed has never killed anyone; suddenly becoming stationary...that's what gets you." - Jeremy Clarkson

[QUOTE=ChrisGonzales90;1627104]did I say I say I had an issue? All I'm saying is if your driving you shouldnt really be playing with your phone. (I'd hate to be on the same road as you) If the app does not work with 3G then just wait till it does.
Chris you seem slow. A radio app doesn't have you playing with your phone. Also it does work with 3G and that's why she's worried about going over 2gb.

Using those data-intensive apps all day, most days, is going to make you break 1GB EASILY.
Either you use those apps less than you claim or you moved a decimal point/put the wrong units somewhere.
I use mine hhe way you say you use yours and I average more than seven gigs per month (7GB).

Those who say there are enough wifi hotspots around, maybe there are enough for your usage, but not mine. Besides, if I'm at Best Buy, I don't want to have to run to McDonald's to see what TigerDirect is charging for the same items. I'd rather do it where I am.
Use your device however you choose, but who impose their opinions on others are a pain. Polite suggestions on price-saving or efficiently are cool.
Learn the difference.

the problem i have is this. The iPhone touts that it has all these features, which by the way I love. And i'm sure i'm not the only one that loves all these features. Most of the features we all love have to use data. So, the iPhone became, or has become, the most data intensive device. To me, this is just a way of further capitalizing on customers that use data on their network. For those that say they'll switch to Verizon, guess what they're switching to tiered data plans as well. It's all because they're competitive on the rate plans for minutes used, where they make their money is gonna be on these data plans. if you're gonna give us a data plan, at least give us one that's a respectable amount like 4 or 5gb(like they do on aircards).
we should try and petition this movement to tiered data plans
oh and for the people that are wondering i have never gone above 2gb on my data plan so in case you were wondering it's something im thinking abiout for the greater good of all of us.iPhone 4S - 64GB WHITE
